EMBARQ Offers Reward for Copper Cable Thieves

EMBARQ is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of anyone stealing the company's live traffic-carrying cable, primarily copper, in the Las Vegas area.

Copper theft is becoming an industry-wide problem. Officials believe that the copper is taken to recycling centers where it is sold as scrap. So far in Las Vegas, more than 60 people have been arrested for copper theft this year. http://www.embarq.com
